Today, a few things: We’ll talk about two maritime related holidays that happened this week: International Turtle Day and National Maritime Day.

And a note of concern as this holiday weekend arrives: mysterious tar balls have been showing up on beaches in SW Washington and Oregon, along with oil soaked wildlife. So far authorities have not been able to determine the cause.

If you see a bird or other creature covered in oil, callĀ 1-800-22-BIRDS. (1-800-222-4737). This hotline is good in both Oregon and Washington.
